Atlanta Brave kept on well to secure a comfortable victory over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow earlier this month and can make his presence felt despite having to shoulder a 7lb penalty for that success. However, HAURAKI GULF was denied by a fairly narrow margin on his most recent outing over 2m3f and is fancied to record his best run over timber stepping up in trip. Kallow Point makes his hurdling debut for powerful connections and is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Hauraki Gulf 2nd Atlanta Brave 3rd Kallow Point

ROSE SEA HAS caught the eye when bolting up on his most recent run over 2m2f at Fontwell and a 5lb raised mark looks unlikely to stop him having a big say in proceedings in this. He kept on for third over an extended 1m7f at Sandown on his penultimate outing, so should not be taken lightly dropping in trip. Galop De Chasse has been eased in class following a distant second at Warwick earlier this month and can give the selection plenty to think about. Generous Day also warrants a market check.
Prediction : 1st Rose Sea Has 2nd Galop De Chasse 3rd Generous Day

A first-time tongue-tie could help Half Dozen build on a distant fourth on his latest outing over this trip at Chepstow, but it could pay to take a chance on the Henry Daly-trained MILTIADES. The gelded son of Doyen lost little in defeat when finishing a good second on his seasonal debut at Catterick earlier this month and has to be respected stepping up in class. Gardener was a game winner on his latest outing at Leicester and is noted too.
Prediction : 1st Miltiades 2nd Gardener 3rd Half Dozen

15:00 Hereford

BILL BAXTER is in the form of his life at present and an 8lb rise for his most recent win at Kelso may not be enough to stop him from landing the hat-trick. The seven-year-old is preferred to the likes of Honneur D'Ajonc, who ran a cracker when second at Leicester last time out, and the consistent Franco D'Aunou. Moriko De Vassy is a player based on the pick of his form as well.
Prediction : 1st Bill Baxter 2nd Honneur DAjonc 3rd Franco DAunou

15:35 Hereford

ONLY THE BOLD could not have won any easier on his stable debut at Bangor in November and further progress looks like a distinct possibility for the son of Jeremy. Hold That Taught is well capable on his day and should be suited by the drop back in trip, while The Kings Writ has a 4lb rise to overcome for a determined victory at Warwick.
Prediction : 1st Only The Bold 2nd Hold That Taught 3rd The Kings Writ

16:10 Hereford

EXIT POLL brings some strong handicap chase form from Ireland on this stable debut for Alan King and looks the one to beat. Envious Editor has something to find on the ratings, but the nine-year-old arrives in fine form and can't be underestimated. Bennys King doesn't appear the force of old, nevertheless, the veteran may be perked up by the first-time cheekpieces.
Prediction : 1st Exit Poll 2nd Envious Editor 3rd Bennys King

Golden Millie sprang a huge surprise to win a bumper at Ffos Las in November and, although she shouldn't be underestimated, she may prove vulnerable now shouldering a 7lb penalty. CASA NO MENTO rates an intriguing rival on her Rules debut after winning her sole point-to-point, and she may have too much speed for Hello Marie, who won between the flags over 3m in Ireland.
Prediction : 1st Casa No Mento 2nd Hello Marie 3rd Golden Millie
